    MOORESVILLE, N.C. - Iredell County District Attorney Sarah Kirkman will not pursue charges in the case of a shot fired from a deputy's gun in a bowling alley that grazed a child.

    An off-duty Iredell County sheriff's deputy accidentally discharged a gun at a George Pappas’ Victory Lanes on May 25 and a 10-year-old child was grazed by a fragment of the bullet after it ricocheted off the floor, authorities said.

    He was later suspended without pay for 20 days and put on employment probation.

    The investigation at Victory Lanes on Morlake Drive in Mooresville wrapped up last week.
